Who Can Help Me With That?

Looking for a great describing appearance activity for your beginner students? This one is like no other in your teacher’s cubby! Students need help with a specific activity and they must choose one of the three characters to help them and explain their choice.

Looking for a more think outside the box describing appearance activity for your beginner or pre-intermediate students? Check out this ESL task-based activity where students must choose someone to help them with a specific task based solely on their appearance.

Describing Appearance Activity

After you download and unzip the file, you will find 7 interactive PDFs. This is first and foremost an ESL task-based activity. Students, individually, in pairs or small groups, will choose one of the activities at the top of their card they need help with and choose one of the characters on their card to help them. To help them make their choice, they will fill out the text boxes on their card and complete the ideas. Once everyone is finished, they will present their ideas to the class. You can easily extend the activity by changing the activity or the card for all the groups.

The task is meant to take up about 15-20 minutes of class time with your beginner students. However, you can use it with more advanced students or groups as long as you expect more detail.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
